barcode scanner

I was wanting to create a barcode scanner that gets a value from a 7 digit id number and searches for it and click attendance to the right of it, I don't know how to search for it on screen.

@BrandonBailey3 Ok. Welp, you're going to need a way to store all of the students. Do you already have a text file/database with all the proper information?

@SixBeeps I have a list of names and student ids in the database that is plain text in a graph
